The Special Prosecutor, Kissi Agyebeng has invited rejected MCE nominee for the Juaben Municipal Assembly, Alex Sarfo Kantanka for questioning on bribery allegations against him.
The Special Prosecutor described Mr. Sarfo Kantanka as “a person necessary for the investigations.”
“You may be accompanied by counsel of your choice,” a letter addressed to Mr. Kantanka and sighted by Citi News added.
Mr. Agyebeng in the letter further indicated that his office “has commenced investigations into allegations of corruption and corruption-related offences (especially corruption and intimidation in respect of a public election) particularly in relation to your Alex Sarfo Kantanka’s nomination and confirmation or otherwise as the Municipal Chief Executive of Juaben Municipality in the Ashanti Region.”
The nominee was captured on tape demanding monies he allegedly paid to the assembly members to motivate them to vote for him.
Angry residents threatened to assault the assembly members for failing to get them a Municipal Chief Executive, TV3’s Ibrahim Abubakar reported.
But for the intervention of the police some casualty would have been recorded, Ibrahim added.
The Police subsequently released a statement that he had been arrested and granted bail.
Speaking on Neat FM in reaction, the MCE nominee said those claims cannot be true because he has been home with his wife and children.
He further confirmed that indeed he demanded a refund of his monies from the assembly members following his rejection for the second time.
